Enabling Bermuda's young adults to develop their passion for entrepreneurship.
Ignite is excited to launch its pilot programme of the Young Adult Entrepreneurial Internship.
Funded through the generosity of HSBC Bermuda, Ignite’s internship initiative aims to offer local young adults, 18-25 years old, first-hand entrepreneurial experience with some of Bermuda’s top startups, most of which are Ignite graduates. Successful interns will gain work experience with local entrepreneurial leaders (in both for-profit and non-profit sectors), attend information sessions with the Ignite Team, and have the opportunity to follow their entrepreneurial passion by working on independent projects in the Ignite Hub with the support of mentors and programme facilitators.
Programme Duration – June - July
Boot Camp (Full Day Workshops) - June
Application Deadline – April
Interview Dates – May
The Young Adult Entrepreneurial Internship Programme will kick off concurrently with Ignite's incoming cohort at their 2-day Bootcamp and will go on to provide one-to-one support from their own business enabler, as well as workshops, partner and mentor support all designed to support and challenge interns throughout their summer’s journey.
The young adult interns will be expected to commit 12 hours a week to the programme consisting of the following:
